FarmHand

We are excited to be raising $15,454 for Seven Mornings Farm to purchase and install a large chicken coop for their egg laying flock of chickens. This request will cover the cost of materials and enable the farm to house more birds, protect them from predators and weather, and improve their quality of life. Located in Carroll County, Seven Mornings is owned by Pauline Thiessen, our Fresh Foods Manager and one of our two women only owned farms. She co-operates the farm with her partner Justin Rescorl, and together they raise cage free eggs for our Co-Op and Atlas restaurant, grow a homestead garden, and manage an orchard. Thanks for helping us support this growing farm business!

Tri Cycle Farms

It’s always a good time visiting our friends at Tri Cycle Farms! We have been working with them for almost a decade now to coordinate different projects, cooking classes and community events. We donate 300lbs of organic chicken feed every month for their chickens, and we could not be happier to watch these beautiful birds grow and live happy and healthy lives on the farm. There’s so many ways to volunteer with Tri Cycle, so check out their website below for more info on how to get involved!

Food Loops

We are excited to announce our partnership with Food Loops to offer sustainable solutions for reducing food waste. This has been in the works for quite some time now, and we are proud to say that over 50% of our kitchen packaging and all of our taproom packaging is commercially compostable! We are the first grocery store in NWA to begin a comprehensive food waste/compostable products and recycling program for the back AND front of house!

RED Co-Op labels on our kitchen items indicate it can be composted.
BLACK Co-Op labels on our kitchen items need to be disposed of in the trash.

Please be sure to remove the label on items before composting!
